    I use my own homemade chicken broth and low fat cheese to cut down on the high sodium and fat in this recipe. I also use brown rice instead of the white rice for better nutrition. - 5/9/15

  • O.K.
    I'm sorry to say that I didn't even try this one. I'm guessing I did something wrong even though I followed it exactly (I rarely deviate from a recipe). It was very liquidy so I didn't even put the cheese on it. Probably won't attempt it again. - 5/26/15
